Volunteer opportunity with our 5th Graders

Junior Achievement is looking for volunteers to teach our 5th graders on March 29. Students will rotate through your "station" throughout the day. You will teach the same skill / presentation six times. We still need 2 more volunteers. There will be a mandatory training on March 13 with our coordinator, Tina Brown. The meeting will take place on March 13 at Regions Bank on 23rd street at 10:00 am. The training will only last approximately thirty minutes. Again, the training on March 13 at Regions Bank and volunteers are to be at NBH on March 29 to present. Please sign up to help! This will count toward your mandatory volunteer hours. 

Golfers - We've got your back! Play in awesome tournaments two weekends in a row!!!!



The Haven Family Foundation is hosting its annual golf tournament on Saturday, April 14th at Holiday Golf Club, 8:30 shotgun start, four person scramble format.  This year's tournament promises to be better than any before.  All proceeds go to the Foundation to help with improvements at both campuses and to benefit students at all five Haven Family schools.  There are plenty of opportunities to participate in the tournament, either as a player, sponsor or contributor.  If you like to play golf (or at least be out in the fresh air and occasionally whack a golf ball), get your foursome together and sign up your team today.  There will be lots of goodies at the tournament for all players.  If golf is not your game or you cannot make it on the 14th, be a sponsor and get publicity for your company.  The Corporate/Family Sponsorship offers the opportunity not only for publicity on the day of the tournament, but at both campuses thereafter!  If you are not inclined to do either, we will gladly accept any donations of goods, gift certificates or other promotional items to be used as prizes or giveaways.  Attached is a sign up flier for the tournament with all pertinent information.  Sign up by April 7th.  To sign up, if you have questions or your would like to help with the tournament, call Bill Henry at 850-774-0887 or Steve Crow at 850-258-5368, or email

The high school yearbook staff took on the privilege of creating the elementary book this year, and they worked hard to create a beautiful book to capture the special moments that your children experienced.  If you want one for your child, make sure you order before they are all spoken for!  The easiest way to order a yearbook is to go online to and search for our school. If you want to pay at school, send $45, check or cash, to Ms. Lensink in room 112 of the high school.  Thanks!


Preschool open enrollment will be held on Tuesday, March 13 at the North Bay Haven Elementary School ONLY.  This enrollment is for both NBH and BH locations.  Enrollment will be open from 8:00 - 10:00 and from 1:00 - 1:45.  NO EARLY ARRIVALS WILL BE PERMITTED UNTIL 8:00.  Please bring application, supply fee, and registration fee at this time.

UPDATE - Service Road Closed

PLEASE REMEMBER -The NBH service road, from the dumpster area to the elementary school, is closed from 7:40 am until 2:00 pm. If the road barriers are up DO NOT GO AROUND THEM and DO NOT MOVE THEM! It is possible the for the wind to blow the barriers over. Do not drive around them or over them. The barriers are strictly for the safety of the children. We appreciate your continued help to ensure the safety of our students.



NBH MEN-tors program is designed for a dad, or father figure, to be able to come to the school and volunteer for the day. Dads will be given a schedule that will allow them to spend time in their child’s classroom and special areas, along with helping in the lunch room and monitoring hallways. MEN-tors will also be given a free t-shirt and their picture taken with their child to be put on the recognition board. This is a great opportunity to get 8 volunteer hours completed!
